Fur-tree from pompoms
By the new year you always want to have a new elegant Christmas tree-beauty. You will not be able to change a large room tree so often, but small tabletop Christmas trees that can be made with your own hands, so you can update them for each holiday season. Very cute Christmas tree for the New Year's celebration is obtained from pompoms. The technology is laborious and requires some time and effort, but the result will please you. Prepare for work the following: yarn of green and white color (you can use leftovers, even if the ball consists of pieces of thread), a template for winding threads for making pompons, a plastic bottle of 1.5-2 l, glass marbles, Christmas tree beads, red satin ribbon, crochet hook, scissors, glue gun, construction knife.
The longest stage in creating a Christmas tree from pom-poms is making yourself pompons. There should be quite a lot of them, the Christmas tree should turn out to be voluminous. We start with a combination of threads. Green-white melange can be performed, both with a predominance of white and with a predominance of green threads. from this, the Christmas tree will be either green or more snowy.
We wind the threads tightly on the template-basis for the pompon. In our case, a small notebook is chosen, it is even easier to use a piece of thick cardboard. Then we firmly tie up the wound threads in the middle. Then we cut the threads from one and the other side and fluff each pompon. For a small Christmas tree, approximately 25 cm in size,should be an average of 25 - 30 pomons.
We make the basis for the Christmas tree out of a plastic bottle, which should be at least 1.5 - 2 l. The bottle should be with a lid. Crop the top, at a distance that will determine the height of the herringbone. In order to keep the thin plastic better, the cut edges are gently and evenly heated on a flat surface, iron or bottom of a heated frying pan. As a result, the edges are curled up to form a tight side.
From any yarn that will be combined with the overall color of the Christmas tree, we knit the stem. We start with a ring of 5 vp, which we tie further in a circle, adding loops evenly until it is the size of a bottom. Then stop adding loops and knit in a circle, tying the bottle to the top. Where it narrows to the neck, we reduce the loop, so that the knitting is tight-fitting.
Putting together a Christmas tree. Pompons with the help of hot melt put on the trunk, close to each other, so that between them there was no empty distance. The last tier is the top of a Christmas tree, two pom-poms that cover the bottle cap. Fixing hot-melt pompoms to a knitted basis turns out to be very strong.
It remains to dress up a fluffy beauty. Attach the Christmas tree beads. So that they sit more reliably, we glue not only the beginning and the end, but also several beads in the central part. Satin bows will be a bright accent. We tie small bows of red ribbon and glue them to the fluffy sides of the Christmas tree. We also make the top of the satin ribbon, tying a bow in any shape, and gluing it to the top of the tree. If you wish, you can decorate the bow with something else from brilliant trifles. Then it's up to Christmas balls.This role will be performed by glass marbles balls. With the help of hot melt glue they are firmly fixed to the threads of the yarn, you can not be afraid that they will tear off. If you still have any “elegance”, beads, buttons or large paillettes for decoration, also fasten them with a drop of hot melt on free places.
Here is such a beautiful Christmas tree with tender fluffy paws and bright ornaments turns out in the end.
